Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Kanye West dissed Taylor Swift again regarding the 2009 MTV VMAs controversy during his latest concert.
According to reports, “The Life of Pablo” rapper put on his first concert since releasing his latest album and he opened up about the incident, which was when he famously interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech.
West defended his actions during the controversial MTV VMAs after he performed his controversial “Famous” track, in which he claims that he was responsible for launching the career of the “Shake It Off” singer. Some of the lines of the “Famous” track reads: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that b** ch famous.”
The father of North and Saint West shared during his concert that he did what he had to do regarding interrupting Swift as he was only stating what everybody else was thinking. West felt that Beyonce deserved the award more than Swift did.
He added, "So if I get in trouble for saying the truth, what's being said the rest of the time? And I had to fight every day of my life, with the whole world turned against me, for saying out loud what everyone else felt. But that's the job of an artist, of a true artist: not to be controlled by their finances, not to be controlled by perceptions, but only to be controlled by their truth."
Regarding the “Famous” song, which has had backlash in the past, West said that he consulted the song with Swift and her team as well as with his wife, Kim Kardashian . He said on Twitter that both were okay with it but Swift denied the reports as her representatives said the “Style” singer warned West it could have some negative impact.
Swift has not yet commented on the latest statements of West.
